Do not overload the appliance (see programme
chart).
Clothes which are dripping wet should not be
placed in the dryer.
As some bulky items such as duvets and
eiderdowns should be dried in large commercial
machines because of their bulk, check with the
manufacturer of the item if it is suitable for drying
in a domestic machine, even if the dry weight of
the item is within the limit advised.
Please make sure that no gas lighters have
accidentally been left in pockets of garments to be
loaded into appliance.
Danger of explosion: Never tumble dry items that
have been in contact with inflammable solvents
(petrol, methylated spirits, dry cleaning fluid and
the like). As these substance are volatile, they
could cause an explosion. Tumble dry only items
washed with water.
In order to avoid danger of fires caused by
excessive drying, do not use appliance to dry the
following items:
Cushions, quilts and the like (these items
accumulate heat).
Items containing rubber foam or materials similar
to rubber foam.
Leave the door slightly ajar when the appliance is
not being used. This will allow the seal to be
preserved.
Clean fluff filters after using tumble dryer. To
prevent fire risks, do not use the appliance if the
fluff filters are damaged.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the machine yourself. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious
malfunctioning. Contact your local Zanussi Service
Centre. Always insist on genuine Zanussi spare
parts.

Your New Tumble Dryer
This tumble dryer will give your wash that soft, relaxed feel whatever
the weather.
Extremely high quality standards both during development and
manufacturing guarantee a long service life for your appliance.
Maximum economy in the operation of your dryer is achieved through
very frugal electricity consumption and short drying times.
Energy saving tips
In the interest
of the environment
To save energy we recommend that you follow these
hints:
● Try to load the maximum capacity of the machine
as small loads are uneconomical.
● Always load well spun laundry. The higher the
spin speed, the lower the electricity consumption
and the shorter the drying times.
● Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and
saves energy.
● Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive
drying times and high electricity consumption.
● Ventilate the room well. The room temperature
should not exceed +35°C during drying.
●
●
●
●
Materials marked with the symbol
are
recyclable.
Check with your local Council or Environmental
Health Office to see if there are facilities in your
area for re-cycling this appliance.
When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door closing
device unusable to prevent young children from
being trapped inside.
Help to keep your country tidy - use authorised
disposal sites for your old appliance.
How do we help to protect the
environment? We use recycled paper!

Drying times vary according to:
• The type of laundry
• The size of the load
• The degree of spinning prior to drying.
• The degree of dryiness required
Fresh & Cool
This position on the programme selector dial can be used to freshen the laundry (e.g. to remove a persistent
odour of moth-balls).
Load
It is often difficult to estimate the weight of items to be dried. We therefore recommend that you adopt the
following guidelines:
• cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
• synthetics: drum no more than half full;
• delicate fabrics: drum no more than one third full.

Hints & Tips on Drying
Before placing articles of laundry in your tumble
dryer, check the care labels to ensure they are
recommended for tumble drying.
●
Care Labels you may find on your laundry
●
normal drying (high temperature)
●
delicate drying (low temperature)
●
may be tumble dried
●
do not tumble dry
●
Do not overload the appliance.
Here is a list of the approximate weight of some
common laundry items.
Sheet
Pillowcase
Tablecloth
Table Napkin
Kitchen Towel
Linen Hand Towel
Hand Towel
Bath Towel
Bathrobe
Shirt
Apron
●
●
700 to 1000 g
100 to 200 g
400 to 500 g
50 to 100 g
70 to 120 g
100 to 150 g
150 to 250 g
700 to 1000 g
1000 to 1500 g
200 to 300 g
150 to 200 g
Always load well spun laundry. The higher the
spin speed the lower the electricity consumption
and the shorter the drying time.
DO NOT load dripping wet laundry into the
dryer. Roll the article in a towel or spin to remove
excess water.
Close poppers and zips and fasten any buttons.
Sort the laundry. Separate synthetics from
cotton/linens, and dry separately.
Remove the laundry immediately after the
programme has finished.
Use a fabric conditioning sheet to reduce static.
We recommend the sheet is pinned to an article of
laundry (using a safety pin).
Mix the load i.e. large and small articles.
When drying large items such as sheets, we
recommend you periodically stop the dryer to
redistribute the load.
DO NOT use the tumble dryer to dry the
following:
●
●
●
●
11
Articles contaminated with inflammable
substances e.g. petrol, cleaning solvents, cooking
oil, fats or hair lacquer.
Woollen and synthetic/wool mixtures unless the
item is labelled as suitable for tumble drying.
Very delicate articles such as silk.
Very large and bulky items such as duvets or
sleeping bags.

Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are
clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which accumulates
during drying and they must therefore be cleaned at
the end of each programme, before removing the
laundry, with a damp cloth.

The filter in the inner door must be removed for

Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It is not due
to excessive wear caused by the dryer. All fabric
looses fluff when drying but it goes un-noticed in the
air. In a tumble dryer it simply collects in the filter.

Unpacking
Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit
level. If it is not, raise or lower the two adjustable
feet at the front of the machine until it is.
Warning !
Slide out the polythene bag containing the
polystyrene block before using the appliance.
P0046
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat build-up which would interfere with
the operation of the appliance.
Important
For a correct functioning of the appliance, the room
temperature must not be lower than +5°C and higher
than +35°C.
P1106
Positioning
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing
machine.
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain
amount of warm, very moist air, and this should be
removed from the room as quickly as possible to
prevent condensation. In an extremely well ventilated
room or close to an open window, this may occur
naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry the dryer's
exhaust outside via the 100 mm diameter flexible
hose supplied with the appliance; ending either
temporarily at an open window, or permanently at a
fixed ventilation grille, fitted to an exterior wall or
window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or material
near the air-intake louvres provided at the back (e.g.
paper, rags etc.).
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the
dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level
surface.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of vent
outlets: one at the back, the others in the left and
right-hand side.
Connect the hose to whichever is the more
convenient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the vent
outlet at the back, screwing it on to the hose and
pushing it firmly back into place.
The unused vents should now be sealed with the
special snap covers provided.

Advice: If the hose is long and the room temperature
low, the moisture might condense to water inside the
hose. This is an unavoidable natural phenomenon.
To prevent this water from lying in the hose or
flowing back into the tumble dryer, it is advisable to
drill a small hole (dia. 3 mm) in the lowest point of
the hose and to place a small container below it.(See
picture, point B).
In order to prevent the appliance from overheating, it
is important that the steam exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose fitted to an
exterior wall or ceiling, it must be ensured an exhaust
capacity of at least 150 m3/h.
If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units, make
sure that the vent hose is not squashed. If the hose
is partially squashed, drying efficiency will be
reduced, resulting in longer drying times and
higher energy consumption.
If the hose is completely squashed, the safety cutouts with which the machine is fitted may operate.
Door reversal
P1056
B
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the
door can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by qualified
personnel.
Please contact the nearest Zanussi Service Centre.
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to the
desired outlet point, ensuring that the run’s overall
length is less than 2 m, and that it contains no more
than two bends. As to the outlet itself, if you have
decided on a fixed wall/window grille, a good local
builder’s merchant should be able to supply you with
the necessary fittings and installation advice.
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is available through your
dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of
your washing machine.
It is important not to connect the vent
hose to, for example, a cooker hood, or
a chimney or flue pipe designed to
carry the exhaust from a fuel burning
appliance.
P1107
P0055
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is
essential that the dryer be fitted with the flexible hose
to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the kitchen units;
preferably outside the kitchen.

that you install a double pole switch between the
appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with a
minimum gap of 3mm between the switch contacts
and of a type suitable for the required load in
compliance with the current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth
cable at any point.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any liability
should this safety measure not be observed.
Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply
voltage is the same as that indicated on the
appliance’s rating plate. (See picture on page 5).
The appliance is supplied with a 13amp plug fitted.
In the event of having to change the fuse in the plug
supplied, a 13amp ASTA approved (BS1363A) fuse
must be used.
Should the plug need to be replaced for any reason,
proceed as described below.
